Re: Notice of Proposed Rule Making to Amend Sections
73.1125 and 73.1130 of the Commission's Rules, the
Main Studio and Program Origination Rules for Radio
and Television Broadcast Stations.
I am in agreement with the Commission's action today
in issuing a Notice of Proposed Rule Making to determine
whether our main studio and program origination
rules are outdated. It is true that the radio and television
marketplace have dramatically changed since the time
these rules were adopted and that new technology calls
their validity into question. At the same time, however, I
wish to emphasize that my support for launching this rule
making should in no way be construed as signaling an
effort to erode what I believe to be a licensee's obligation
to serve the needs and interests of the community to
which it is licensed. Indeed, as I consistently emphasized
in our must-carry proceeding, a licensee's local obligation
is a very substantial government interest and, indeed, as
the court of appeals has held, is a statutory obligation of
every licensee. See UCC v. FCC, 707 F.2d 1413, 1429 n.
46 (D.C. Cir. 1983).
